I can’t believe I almost forgot this, but in the U.S. May 6 is Nurses’ Day. Doctors, show the nurses you work with how much you appreciate their care and help. I know my clinical workload would be far less manageable without my nurse; I might not even be able to handle it and my laboratory research at the same time. (Unfortunately, I’ll have to wait until Monday to show my appreciation, as she was off work Thursday and Friday, and heavily involved working with my partner on Wednesday.) Patients, show how much you appreciate their caring work.
Continuing to some extent a theme from the other day, I wish my textbooks had read like this one. I have to say, this is the first time I’ve ever seen the term mÃ©nage Ã trois in a science textbook. It’s also used as a surprisingly good analogy, although I wonder how the author would know about what constitutes a “successful” mÃ©nage Ã trois.
